and point 6 was allegedly senator hagel said that the u.s. state department was an adjunct of the israeli foreign minister's office, which i think would be breath taking if he said that, had such a view and i got a letter back from senator hagel, in response to my question, did you say that and do you believe that, and, the letter says he did not recall saying that and disavowed that statement. >> chris: is that enough for you? >> well if that is true, that would end the matter because he previously said in a book the jewish lobby intimidates members of congress, particularly the u.s. senate and makes us -- pushes us to make very bad decisions. if the second statement were true, he said, the secretary of state's office is under the control of the israeli foreign ministers, those two together, would edge our view of the israe israeli-u.s. relationship way out. >> chris: democrats say you are playing politics with national security. here's what president obama said. >> president barack obama: it is just unfortunate that this kind of politics intrudes at a time when i'm still presiding over
five days o go there is no deal and the deadline is here. joining us, two senate leaders on budget issues, from oklahoma republican tom coburn and from missouri, democrat claire mccaskill. senators, let's start with the big question, quick question, quick answer, will the sequester happen? will those $85 billion in spending cuts kick in on friday? senator coburn? >> yes, it will and it is not $85 billion, because it is a pro rata portion of that, until the end of the year and it will not be a full $85 billion. >> chris: but it is going to kick in? >> it will kick in. but, at a pro rata rate and you will not see $85 billion all of a sudden shrink, from the federal government. >> chris: we're going to get to that in a second. senator, do you agree it is going to happen? >> well, unless the republicans are willing to compromise, and, do a balanced approach, i think it will kick in. i am a little confused about the republican position at this point. it appears that speaker boehner does not have any kind of bill that he can even put on the floor of the house, that could pass, within his
to a store in tucson, pass the background check and buy the gun he used to shoot your wife. so, the question is, what good does it do to make more people go through these background checks when jared loughner with his problems was able to pass a background check? >> that is a good question, chris. he was clearly mentally ill. the school knew it, his parents knew it and he was expelled from community college because of his mental illness. if his condition was entered into the system, into the criminal background check system, and he went to do that background check, i would assume that he would have been rejected. so, in the case of jared loughner, if arizona would have entered 121,000 records that they had not entered into the system, if his record was one of those, and the he probably would have been rejected, like, since 1999, 1 million criminals and mentally ill have been rejected when trying to buy a weapon. the other point we need to make is, there is a gun show loophole. so in the case of the rejection at the gun store, he could have easily gone to a gun show or private seller and get
